SurveyLA is coming to Council District 13 neighborhoods

In an unprecedented effort to identify and document places in Los Angeles of social, historical and cultural significance, the Office of Historic Resources is conducting SurveyLA. Survey results will shape community plans, facilitate environmental review processes, assist in disaster planning and tourism efforts, and provide educational opportunities.

In this second year of field surveys and the project will be working with the community members in Echo Park, Elysian Valley, Silver Lake, and Westlake for assistance with identifying significant places in these neighborhoods. All are invited to share with Survey LA their unique knowledge about places in their neighborhood.
